For other people named James Martin, see James Martin (disambiguation).

James Stewart Martin was Chief of the Decartelization Branch for Military Government in Germany after World War II. His book All Honorable Men was published by Little Brown in 1950. In it, Martin catalogs the difficulties faced by his team trying to deconstruct the Nazi industrial machine, not the least of which was opposition to his efforts by his superior officer, an investment banker in peacetime. In the book, Martin blamed Wall Street's pre-war ties to German Big Business for obstructionist efforts among the Allied powers to prevent the breakup of German industrial power.[1]
